I have been running dual boot with xp for about a week now and I think it’s worth getting W7. In terms of performance I find it just a bit slower than xp (1GB ram) but I really like the way it works and looks. It is just more comfortable to work with W7 but since the battery life seems to be shorter I will keep the xp for the unplugged tasks.November 3, 2009 at 12:31 pm in reply to: I have a really simple WIndows 7 Installation Guide! #179372
I have just found this:
Has anyone tried to install Windows 7 this way? In my opinion the best solution if you have a 4GB pendrive.
Just wondering about the differences between Ultimate and Home Premium. It would be great to hear from you how it works in terms of memory usage and battery life.
Interested in flight simulators?
I have recently tried Condor: The Competition Soaring Simulator and Flanker 2.5. Both working fine and playable BUT dufficult to control without a joystick. I am planning to try a gampad with these…
Does anybody know how to slow down gameplay in Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines? I have used CPUGrab but I don’t like the way it works – adds extra CPU load. After running in Win95 coompatibility mode and Silent Mode it’s still to fast.
I have istalled it both on my nc10 and desktop some time ago. Nice piece of software that does what it’s supposed to do. Doesn’t need much resources, many configuration options and no issues so far.
A bit different sutuation but worth mentioning. I have registered KMplayer with Battery Manager and it didn’t work. It was saved in the .ini file but without any extension (e.g. player31=KMplayer). Changing it to player31=KMplayer.exe solved the problem.
Maybe a tray problem. Are there any other icons missing? Try logging off and in again without rebooting. If this doesn’t work, Alt+Ctrl+Del to go to Task Manager, end explorer.exe process and run it again (in Task Manager File -> New Task, type explorer.exe).January 23, 2009 at 11:43 am in reply to: Can the NC10 handle HD video? Like 720p .mkv files? #181021
As far as I understand you are not going to watch these videos on external display. 720p resolution is 1280×720 and nc10 display is 1024×600 so why bother with HD if it would be scaled for small display anyway? Smaller resolution (and size) DivX videos look fine on nc10.
I’ve had my nc10 for about a week now and I find 1GB sufficient even for some older games. XP does not require mouch memory. I also have 1GB in my XP desktop and it works perfect.
Good to know that Second Life works! I have collected my nc10 last week and I love it! Since then I have tried Sudden Strike II and Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines. Both playable.
But the most importatnt for me is that MS Flight Simulator 2004 works on this machine! I have just installed it and it runs smoothly at 1024×600. Detail settings were set automatically to medium-low (probably some adjustments possible) but looks fine.
Does video RAM size matter in case of nc10? I wouldn’t expect any change in performance.
Actually I am Polish but I live in Dublin.
I am looking forward to testing Commandos: Behind enemy lines on nc10. I would also suggest Panzer General 2. Not actually an RTS but a good game.
